Never mind free agency. How the Hell does anybody get a monopoly on talent 3 players deep - under the current salary cap structure? This is not a problem for a few baseball team owners who spend money like drunken sailors.

The formula goes something like this: all star QB takes a pay cut and top tier free agents sign on for less than market rates. It's called selflessness which is a very rare commodity these days.

Unless you're the 49'ers and then you just pay people off the books until players that have been retired start showing up to ask the new owners where their paychecks are.

Maybe Joe Montana should've gotten some of that off the books pay. Poor guy's in those commercials working at a diner slinging hash.
